People are so intrigued by the term – Entrepreneur, but most of those enthusiastic CEO Wannabe don’t even know the kind of skills it takes to be on top of the game. You might put in those extra hours of efforts to enhance your work abilities and to make your product more successful but what you don’t acknowledge much is improving your own skills!
With your product you also need to build your personality and inculcate business skills and culture if you want to be on the Forbes list. Well, vision might differ of each Founder but there are three vital skills that all rising entrepreneurs need to master to make it huge!
1. You need to stay focused.
No matter what the circumstances are, to be in the game you can’t afford to lose your focus. You cannot make any solid progress if you find yourself jumping from checking your voicemails and messages to your calendar to a project and then back to your emails, in simple terms caught up in managing multiple not that necessary tasks. You need to get off that multi-tasking myth and train yourself to focus on each goal in turn.
2. Body language matters the most.
Your body language defines how much successful you are going to be and how far you can go. The way you sit in front of your investors, the way you hold pen, the way you shake hands and even the way you smile can be the reason why you were rejected or accepted by the business world. Try mastering great body language to take your entrepreneurial game up to the next level. You’re an entrepreneur and your body language needs to say the same as well.
3. Learning to negotiate.
People who are known to negotiate well might say that developing empathy and being kind are two of the biggest advantages you can give yourself at the negotiation table. The ones you are negotiating with might be more nervous than you, you got to be confident and firm on your talk. Do not attack with words while negotiating. Keep smiling and get it done!
So now you know what abilities you need to develop but important thing here to notice is that it takes a lot of time and patience to achieve those key skills. Learning how to present positive body language that will make sponsors want to invest in you is just as important as improving your product – but those skills won’t come overnight. Treat yourself as your most valuable asset, and you’ll be shocked at how far you’ll go!
